The Great Canadian Anecdote Contest

The Great Canadian Anecdote Contest

George Woodcock
$21.95


Two fishermen find a whale trapped in their net; neither of them can swim so they must trust the whale to support them while they put away the net and get back to the boat. . . In the wilderness of the Peace River, a man performs delicate surgery on his sick comrade, without anaesthetic, and with only the assistance of a doctor's voice on the radiotelephone. . .

These and 70 other striking anecdotes are collected in this extraordinary volume, published in support of the Canada-India Village Aid Society. There are contributions from fifteen Canadian luminaries, among them Timothy Findley, Toni Onley, Margaret Atwood and P.K. Page, and from scores of ordinary Canadians.
